Spend a few hours with me in the forest where I will show you how to create Magic.

Spend a few hours with me in the forest where I will show you how to create Magic. I will teach you how to find the light and use it. I will demonstrate how to connect with your child subject and control the shoot. I will show you how to style for the appropriate environment. Most importantly I will help you understand how to harness your vision and show the world YOUR magic.

Segment 1: Styling for the Shoot. We choose the wardrobe together while I explain what works. You join us at hair and make up and we prepare our child model for the day. Here you will meet my team that I work with regularly and participate in our interactions.

Segment 2: Pre-Shoot Lesson. Before we head out to the forest, you join me and and a small group of attendees as we discuss all the whys and hows of this business and how to find your voice and translate your vision.

Segment 3: The Forest Shoot. We work in the forest right before sunset which is my favorite time to shoot. I demonstrate how I find and harness the light, how I pose and connect with my subjects. I will go over my settings and why I have chosen them. You get to watch me work with individual in-person students while we focus on a variety of topics.

Segment 4: Editing in Photoshop. At the end of the day we’ll finish up while I demonstrate my editing workflow. We conclude with the perfect examples of how to turn your vision into beauty.

This purchase includes lifetime access to almost 4 hours of videos.

    This online workshop is just the best of the videos I purchased from Meg. They are all totally worth it but this one is just everything. Meg is such an openminded and inspiring woman and she doesn’t keep secrets, she tells you just everything she knows and I totally appreciate that.

    Out of all the tutorials that I have purchased from Meg Bitton Live, I have found this one to be the most helpful to me in regard to posing and editing. I frequently re-watch it to pick up subtle hints. Regardless of the genre you shoot you will pick up many things that are relevant to all areas of photography. Loved it and would not be without it in my kit of workshops. Thanks Meg and your team for a wonderful tutorial.

    I enjoyed this online workshop so much… I have purchased a lot of edits and training through MBL, but what I loved about this is how personal Meg got into not only the how she does what she does, but WHY. There were so many “a ha!” moments in these videos, and so many useful things that will stick with me while venture off into my own sessions. Thank you!

    Magic in the forest really gives you a feel for how Meg works. I enjoyed every minute of it, and so wish I could have been present. You see where and how she places her model, what she is thinking, and the best? Going back and watching her edit to achieve the vision she wanted. Really a worthwhile video!

    This is one awesome workshop. i have a few edits from Meg but always wanted a workshop to see her in action.. after stalking her posts from 2010-11 it has been brilliant to see her in action. I think this is one of her first workshops and she shares all of her knowledge without holding back…hoping to afford some more workshops soon

Love watching and listening to Meg and hearing participants stories, it gets personal and I can relate on many levels. This is must have and worth every penny!

    THE BEST! Watching Meg in action is by far one of the BEST learning experiences for any photographer. If you haven’t had the luxury of attending one of her workshops in person (you should if you haven’t), this is the next best thing. She shares all of her wisdom, techniques & her thought processes along the way. In addition you then get to see the final product when she edits which is worth more than its weight in gold. I am such a ‘meg believer’… I have attended a few of her workshops and Meg cares…she cares about what you need and does her best to incorporate your needs somehow into the workshop. I’ve watched this video a few times, watched many of her edits over & over and there is no question, that I am a much better photographer in many ways because of Meg. It isn’t just about what you do with your camera, how to pose, the clothes, & location but having a vision of what you want to see on your screen and making that happen…that’s what Meg is all about. If you are here reading this review, I highly suggest you push the ‘add to cart’ button & make this purchase. Seeing is believing….you will be taken on an awesome Meg Journey…what could be better than that?

    Absolutely amazing! This is one of Meg’s earlier workshops and she very clearly explains how to find the light and pose subjects in the most natural way – and quickly yet too! An absolute must watch!!

    Magic in the Forest is a valuable tool in that you can learn the obvious – taking photos of beautifully dressed children in a special environment – – but it also can be translated into other formats. You can take the same skills that you learn here and use them when shooting families or other more casual situations as well. Not only that but if you combine this with Magic in the Details and you have an opportunity to be in nature to just relax and enjoy your camera and creativity WITHOUT any people you can truly get back to basics and create beautiful art. Watch it more than once to glean the little things you miss the first few times!

    Absolutely wonderful! So much information and Meg is truly remarkable in her ability to teach and inspire. I keep returning to this workshop to watch it over and over and pick up something new each time. It has definitely made me feel more confident in the way I shoot. I am a quiet person naturally, and I love to wait for special moments when shooting kids. Candids are my favorite.. I have self-doubted for a long time based on what I perceive to be client’s expectations. I have taken a break from shooting clients to focus on what drove me to photography in the first place. Meg has absolutely inspired me to hold on to my dream and live it the way I want to. I would buy every single video edit and workshop she offers if I could. Her desire to truly want to help others do what they love the way they want to do it is a testament to the remarkable person she is. Magic in Forest was worth every penny- and months later continues to be a powerful tool in my arsenal of not only photography and photoshop knowledge, but personal growth as well.
